Nothing works. Baby comes when baby is ready.

Nipple stimulation 15 minutes on each side (Easier with a breast pump, but still possible with your fingers or your SO's help)
Bouncing on a birthing ball
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
Evening Primrose Oil
Acupressure Points (You can do them yourself, but again might be easier with SO's help for some of them):

but the other ladies are correct that if your body isn't ready, these things will do nothing. Much more likely to work if you're already starting to dilate a bit or have some contractions even if they're irregular.
Worth a try though and best of luck.

How far along are you? But to answer your question... like two princesses said nipple stimulation works well. It produces the chemical oxytocin which is what causes you to go into labor. I'd be careful with that though. It can cause extreme contractions. But, honestly unless youre overdue I wouldn't try making yourself go into labor. Just wait and it will happen when it happens each one of mine was overdue and I had virtually no issues with any of them once I went into labor. Hang in there you'll hold you LO soon enough!!! And congrats on the pregnancy.
